If you have a good idea of the enemy strength and know that you will defeat them, sending defense afterwards to reinforce the other City may be a good idea. But attacking blind or when victory is not guaranteed carries rather significant risks!
This is all about siege Dima..
Here is example Bazooka. If I send defensive units as reinforcement to my ally who is under siege i will lose all defense IF guy who sieged my ally have defense in his city. So in short, always use offensive units(as reinforcement) when you want to liberate someone and even when you want to break someone's siege you will use offensive units.
lets say that i want to liberate my city from a siege. what type of units i send??? offensive or defensive??
so far that is not very clear to me
Firstly you need to scout no matter if is your city under a siege or a friend city.
When you liberate you send offense units.
if you are online and you see an income of a siege you will use your defense units if you wish to defend.
Not always is profitable to defend your city because as we know units are hard to build time consuming and better to use them hitting Persian positions.
If you defend your city make sure you know your enemy and have enough defense to kill your enemy and you can do this with the help of your friends, team mates or with help from alliance of coalitions.
Build up your Traps and wall defense as those are the first to take the hit before reaching your units.
Do not forget to add your boosts accordingly as you can find them:
- from Market in GPs tab -> defense or offense enhancer 10% at a cost of 125 Gps for 4 hours
- in my Items ( down to the left hand side of your game page , marked as + )
*depending of your intentions will add either defensive bonus to your units or offensive bonus to your units)
-at 400 Drachmas or 125 Gps for 20%for 4 hours
-at 250 Drahmas or 125 G[s for 10%for 4 hours
If you want to avoid the fight to fight another day when you ready, then you can choose :
- 1 day protect your city from all attacks
-8 hours protect your city from all attacks
-3 days protect your city from spying
-Increase city defense bonus
you can upgrade and select:
-unit defense or offense bonus
- city defense bonus up to 30%
Good luck I hope this helps.
